I like to keep my Blog clean and simple, not so much stuff, too cluttered! There are lots of fun gadgets and tools to look over. I had added the snow effect and it made my blog flicker, so I removed it. I did add the Google search box. I also have added a site meter to see how many people visit my blog. I also added a picture trail, which I think turned out well. I did try many other things, one being the speech/audio section. Many looked really fun, but again too much on the blog gets messy.

OK Here we go again. I hope to do better this time. It took me two tries last time. I gave my Blog a new look, although I liked the way it looked before. I gave my avatar a new look for winter. I do try and keep "her" up to date depending on time of year. I also added a gadget, current weather. I seem to always have to know what the weather is doing or going to do. So adding that gadget was fun. I also added the Google search gadget. I have looked at most Blogs, but have not commented on any of them. I will try harder to do that. So, here we go with "23 More Things".

WOW!! I did it!! It took me two times, but I did it. I have to admit I rushed through the last 4 or 5 to get done, so I will definitely go back and look at those closer. This was so fun and educational. I really learned alot about different tools on the web. I enough impressed my daughter and some of things I learned and that is pretty good when you can impress a college student about something on the computer! Ha! Well, like I said I will definietely use these tools and I will go back and look some of the Things closer. Thank you to everyone involved.
I found this whole experience very educational. I already use some of the tools every day and others from time to time. I will definitely go back and look at all of the 23 Things again. Some of the tools I will use for personel use and some for work. This was really all very fun.
I joined Gather and Ning, I was already a member of Web Junction. I really liked Ning. I joined the 23 Things on A Stick group. I think I will go back to this often and join in conversations, etc. And also see how everyone else did on this 23 Things and what they thought about it.

I have set up accounts on MySpace and Facebook. I go to Facebook almost everyday. My contacts/friends are my daughter and her friends and also some of my son's friends. I use it for personel reasons to keep up with everything. I also went to some library groups on Facebook, did not join. I had a MySpace page before, but could not get back in - so set up a new name and low and behold it found my old one. I do not go to or use MySpace very much, as you can tell, I forgot the name. I do not know if these sites would work well in a library or not. Maybe if I knew a little more about each site, they may work. I have not looked at these sites in depth. These sites and fun to play around with and a good way to keep in touch with people you do not see very often.
